Diffusing essential oils have a number of benefits. Fragrance your home without synthetic fragrances, unlike some candles there is no toxic fumes. Young Living Essential oils are pure plants extracts and their seed to seal guarantee is their committment to providing quality Essential oils. If you don’t have essential oils read my Essential Oil page for more information

An article recently published in the Good Weekend talks about the dangers of synthetic fragrance and it part of a book written by Kate Grenville- The case against fragrance. Read it here She speaks about the headaches she has suffered that after removing artificial frangrance have gone away. In my experience removing artifical fragrance has certainly been positive for my skin too. The Laundry aisle in the supermarket is a challenge for me to walk through down now!  Time to make some Laundry powder again.

Hope you like these combinations, let me know how you go

Thieves Household cleaner

thieves-household-cleaner

This product has to be one of the most versatile cleaners there is. I wanted to write about it to open your eyes to the number of uses there are from one bottle of Concentrate.

Firstly Thieves Household  Cleaner is made from Young Living’s Thieves Blend of Essential Oils- Rosemary, Eucalyptus, Cinnamon bark, Clove, Lemon essential oils and plant and mineral based ingredients. It contains surfactants sodium methyl 2-sulfolaurate and disodium 2-sulfolaurate which are made from renewable sources,biodegradable and septic safe. I have looked up all the individual ingredients on the Environmental working group website and they have no warnings.Unlike other cleaners you can buy from the supermarket, all the ingredients are on the bottle!

It is safe for any member of my family to use which is great when the kids are helping out.

This really is one product with many uses

The concentrate can be used in the following ratios water/cleaner ratio. Check the back of your bottle.

NB 1 capful=10ml

  • 30/1 Most cleaning applications
  • 15/1 Heavy degreasing
  • 50/1 light Degreasing

I have a 450ml spray bottle and add one capful of cleaner and top up with water for my shower, sinks, toilets, benches. I spray and then wipe off with a damp microfibre cloth. Showers will benefit from leaving for 5-10 mins before wiping/rinsing off.

Carpet

Here is a before and after photo of a very quick spray and blot with a microfibre cloth on my carpet. I was so impressed at how well it came up. I used 1/2 cap in a 450ml spray bottle, sprayed carpet, left for a few minutes and rubbed with a damp microfibre cloth.

Dishwasher

To keep your dishwasher in great working order, add one capful to the dispenser and wash on empty on the hottest setting. It can also be used as a replacement for your dishwasher detergent.

Jewellery Cleaner

Avoid paying for your jeweller to clean your rings and do it yourself. Add one capful to 1/2 cup vodka and soak rings for 20 mins. Clean with a soft brush and rinse and dry with a soft cloth. Sparkling jewellery with minimum effort. Keep your cleaner labelled in a jar for next time.

Windows/ Glass

Add 1/2 cap to a 450ml spray bottle with 2-3 drops lemon essential oil. Top up with water Spray and wipe with a microfibre cloth for a streak free finish.

Bathrooms

Use a  450ml spray bottle with 1 capful , or 1 capful to 250ml for heavier application. Spray and leave  for 10 minutes before using a small brush to clean grout if required. wipe with a microfibre cloth. Rinse and dry

Stain remover

For a stain remover spray, in a spray bottle(450ml) half fill with vinegar, add 1 capful of Thieves Household cleaner, 10 drops of Lemon Essential Oil and then top up with water. Lightly shake before spraying clothing

Stubborn stains on ceramics or grout 

To eliminate stains from your bath, sink, toilet or ceramic cookware use 1/4 cup bi-carb soda mixed with enough cleaner (about 1 capful) to form a paste, scrub with a brush and rinse.

Car Wash

As this product is an excellent degreaser I recently used to to clean my car. Add a capful to a bucket of water. I scrubbed our rubber mats and cleaned the wheels with ease.

General cleaner

Using half a capful in a 450ml spray bottle you can clean kids toys, walls, tables, benches, yoga matt, gym equipment, cap upholstery, stainless steel, inside the fridge, the list is endless.

Cost breakdown

With a wholesale membership, a 426ml bottle of Thieves cleaner($39.50)  will give you approximately  42 x 450ml bottles of cleaner! using approximately 10ml of concentrate per application. That is $0.92 per bottle/application. This bottle will last at least 6 months probably longer

Diffusing-More than just a scent

Essentail oils are plant extracts that are dervied by three process: steam distillation, resin tapping and cold pressing. The oil obtained from leaves, seeds, bark, skin of plants contains therapeutic properties that when diffused can have an amazing effect.

When I first received my Essential Oils I used a few drops in my diffuser. The diffuser uses ultrasonic technology to break down the oil with water into millions of microparticles and disperses them into the air. Diffusing essential oils is a perfect way to dispel odours and create a peaceful environment. Before I had a diffuser I had used some essential oils in an oil burner but I have since learnt that a cold air diffuser preserves their therapeutic properties. Using an oil will burner with a heat surce will destroy any therapeutic properties. There is more information in an article from Well Being Magazine that you might find useful

Essential oils when inhaled  reach our brain via the olfactory nervous system and can have an impact on our physical, emotional and spirirtual well being

Rosemary has been shown to improve memory and peppermint enhances mood and cognition( always use only 1-2 drops peppermint as it is strong). Lavendar supports nervousness, insomnia,helps to wind down and so many much more! Aide from it’s beautiful refreshing scent Lemon can enhance mood and concentration and was demonstrated in this study

Rosemary and lemon are perfect in the workplace for supporting concentration or for the studying student. Lavendar is perfect at bedtime.

Aside from the  support to mood, concentration and your emotions, Thieves essential oil has been studied for it’s effectiveness killing mould. Dr Close has used Thieves Essential oil, diffused for 48 hrs to kill mould spores. Watch a clip of Dr Close explain his findings.

As thieves is great at cleaning the air, it is perfect to diffuse for 30mins daily when you are suffering from a cough or cold.

Young Living has a number of diffusers but the three below are available with the Premium Starter Kit. There are a few different options and if you are interested in Essential oils visit my page on Essential Oils or email me at belindajforsyth@gmail.com
